Life Hacks cleaning ceiling fan

Be honest: When was the last time you cleaned your computer keyboard, baseboards and ceiling fans? That’s what we thought. We’re also willing to bet you’ve ignored your grimy cookie sheets and the splatter-stained wall behind the stove because you incorrectly assumed there was no way to improve their appearance. The truth is that most of the things you thought were impossible to clean actually have simple solutions — in fact, some of them are so simple that you’ll be kicking yourself for neglecting them for so long. These 15 cleaning hacks will revolutionize the way you tidy…

Life Hacks dry cleaning

After doing a bit of research on how to launder dry cleaning at home, we came across this for making your own dry cleaning sheets that refresh and clean your clothes. But instead of reusing a dry cleaning bag that comes with an at-home kit, we decided to put a bit of a spin on things, making it so much easier to refresh your dry-clean-only clothing. And you can personalize this smart hack with your favorite essential oil, making your special items smell absolutely amazing. Really, it s so easy! What You ll Need: Small bowl 3/4 cup water 1/4 cup vinegar 1 teaspoon borax 1 teaspoon…

Life Hacks cleaning stove top

Only those who don’t work don’t commit errors and the only stove burners that don’t get dirty are those that are not used intensively for cooking. Mine are usually a mess and the idea of scrubbing them was so appalling that I kept postponing the inevitable until it was painful to even look at them. There are of course plenty of chemicals and expensive cleaning products out there for those like me who allow things to grow out of proportion but they come with a hefty price tag. What I propose is a smart solution of cleaning the stove burners with virtually no effort and without…

Life Hacks best way to clean keyboard

Sometimes I eat at my laptop. Usually it s something like potato chips carrots and celery sticks. That s neither here nor there. Point being, I ve been known to snack whilst staring at my screen, which leaves me with not the cleanest computer. In order to maximize your cleaning of crumbs, if you don t have one of those fancy air blower things (that s the technical term), just grab a sticky note or two and call it a day. To make the sticky note a little sturdier, fold it in half with the sticky side facing out. Run the sticky part along your keyboard keys to pick up any dust…

Life Hacks cleaning bathroom

Cleaning the bathroom is just about no one s idea of a good time. It s dirty, it s smelly, it s downright depressing. For many of us, it s a chore we either outsource or put off as long as possible until it s so disgusting, it becomes 1, times worse. Then, of course, once we DO clean, we do so with harsh chemicals that strip the enamel (and our nose hairs) and make the whole job that much more unpleasant. It s a nightmare. More from The Stir: It doesn t have to be that way. With regular maintenance and a little creativity, the bathroom can STAY clean and all of it can be done…

Life Hacks for house cleaning

Cleaning the house is a necessary chore, but let s face it—some of us might not mind it, but no one really loves it. Still, like many chores, it s usually bigger in our head than it is when we set in to do it. Here are some ways you can streamline the process, make sure you have the tools on-hand when you need them, and never wonder what you should do next. We walked you through some tips for putting all of your household chores on autopilot a while back, and while many of them still apply, when it comes to house cleaning, you can t just automate it—the cleaning needs to get…

Life Hacks for cleaning your room

With busy schedules we rarely clean as often or as thoroughly as we would like. To combat clutter and keep your bedroom tidy between deep cleans consider adding a daily or weekly 10-minute bedroom cleaning to your to-do list. Gather your materials, give yourself 1-2 minutes for each task, and in 10 minutes your bedroom should be much less messy than when you started. Last year Melanie Pinola covered how to put your chores on auto-pilot which introduced me to the concept of 10-minute cleans for the bathrooms and kitchen. Modern living weblog Apartment Therapy now offers suggestions…

Life Hacks cleaning grill

We re practically a week deep into Grilling Month, so if you haven t scrubbed the 8-month-old, burned-then-frozen crust off your grates yet, now would be the time. But say you can t find the grill brush, or the one you have is so choked with burned-then-frozen crap that cleaning it would take a lot more time than cleaning the grill itself (and would probably shred your fingers). There are not one but two ways to clean your grill without a brush , both of which are almost inevitably already in your kitchen. First, heat up your grill. Spraying a little white vinegar on the grates…

Life Hacks for cleaning Couches

Dog hair is a fact of life, one of those small inconveniences we accept as part of the doggy deal alongside muddy pawprints on the kitchen floor and slobbery kisses when you know exactly where that mouth has been. My pet family includes two dogs and four cats, so we’re dealing with a whole lot of pet hair on our floors, furniture, and clothing. After a lifetime of pet parenthood and many years working in doggy daycare care, I’ve become somewhat of a snob about pet hair removal tools. This list of tried and true dog hair removal tools has something for everyone, from premium…

Life Hacks cleaning tips

It wasn’t long ago that once a year households would undertake a big spring clean: the annual tradition of cleaning your house from top to bottom. It does however appear that those days are long gone. A new study has revealed that households in Britain have little time or inclination to complete what once deemed to be an important part of people’s annual routine. A YouGov poll commissioned by green energy company Good Energy, showed that less than half (49%) of those surveyed said that they still undertake a once a year comprehensive clean of their homes. A sizeable 30% also…

Cleaning is a terrible activity no matter what room it’s taking place in. But there is no place more frustrating to keep clean than a bathroom. They usually don’t give you the optimum space needed to maneuver around in there. Bathroom cleaning takes place in sections. You clean the toilet, you clean the sink and then you clean the bathtub and shower before finally mopping the floor. It’s not the easiest of chores on your day’s to-do-list. Showers prove to be a constant struggle to keep clean, because of how frequently they are used. Here’s an easy bathroom cleaning hack for…

Life Hacks cleaning suede

I have suede shoes also and like to keep them clean, I have looked many times but I have never been able to find anything other than commercial protection products which are actually very good and can keep spills and liquids off keeping them dry and clean. Something that I personally use is Crep Protect which is fairly cheap and very effective - I run out of it quite quickly those which is a downside. In regards to cleaning them, you should really steer clear of using water on the suede as this can damage them. In the event that you spill something on the material, dry it quickly…
